Four Corners – an interview with Melanie Archer

4_C_logotype_col-1-200x200This month we take a trip back to Trinidad to interview our first female designer from the region. Like many of her contemporaries, her work is multi-disciplinary, encompassing graphic design, art direction, curation and writing. Each of which she does with a style and flair that is borne out by the fact that she is involved in many of the most exciting projects coming out of the Caribbean. A sharp shooter by nature, as well as by name, it is my pleasure to introduce Melanie Archer.

The film and television show graphic designer was taken by surprise when she was thrown into the limelight following her work on Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014. We chat to her about the often “invisible” role of graphic design on screen, and why all the hard graft is worth it in the end.
